The Duals

The Duals were only 2 guys. I don’t know if that’s why there were called The Duals. They both played guitar. I assume that either they got session men to help out, or they added band members. The story is not clear.

They didn’t do much aside from their one hit.

The Duals:

Stick Shift – Said to be the first hot rod song. Possibly. What they did here was this: they took an ordinary, serviceable but not stellar, instrumental, added car sounds, and gave it an automotive title. Voila. A hot rod record. From the fall of 1961. Their only hit.
